Tanzila Naz's Story
Tanzila Naz, a 34-year-old woman from district Khanewal suffers from a disease called cholelithiasis. This is the technical term for what is commonly known as gallstone formation. For a decade or so, Tanzila has been writhing with pain because of this condition, complaining about abdominal cramps and vomiting frequently. However, it is in the last year or so that her condition worsened to an extent that surgical treatment for this has become critically crucial for Tanzila’s health. It is called laparoscopic cholecystectomy, a surgical procedure for removing the gallbladder completely. We will explain how this surgery can make Tanzila’s life painless once more. But for now, we want you to familiarize you with her family’s financial status.
Tanzila is a proud mother of two sons and a housewife. It is her husband who is the sole breadwinner of the house. From a job at a shoe market, her husband is minting a meager 12,000 PKR per month, which is simply not enough to make both ends meet. Occasionally, Tanzila tries her luck at stitching to earn a bit of extra money. But the fact that the 4-membered family has to make-do in a 3-marla house sums up the financial status of the Tanzila’s family quite succinctly. With this background in mind, no matter how useful a procedure Lap. Cholecystectomy might be, Tanzila Naz is never going to be able to afford it because of its expensive nature.
“According to my doctors, a Lap. Cholecystectomy can be the end of my gallstone woes. But with no hope of funding whatsoever, I have started to live with my condition. Maybe, my life is supposed to be spent this way, squirming and screaming in pain”
